  • Summary: Mythos is an online, action role-playing game that is free to download and free to play. Set in the land of Uld – a fantasy world arising from the ashes of an epoch-long war of darkness – players assume the roles of fantasy heroes as they explore, adventure, and quest through entirely randomized dungeons and environments. With an elegant point-and-click interface and an accessible "isometric" perspective, Mythos is poised to have near-universal appeal. The game allows thousands of players to interact within the same world while using mostly "instanced" dungeons to create unique gaming experiences suited for both solo and group-minded players. As players journey into Mythos' ever-expanding universe, they select one of four races (Human, Satyr, Gremlin, or Cyclops) and opt to play as a particular character class using a huge variety of skills and items. Through heroic quests players search for gold, gems, armor, and weapons, while unlocking the secrets of Uld. Mythos presents a constantly expanding, continuously updated world where something new lurks around every corner. [Flagship Studios] Expand

    It's like the 2007 game Dungeon Runners, just bigger and less self-deprecating. There is no great story, but who cares if it's free and fills the gap until Diablo 3 is finished.

    The proposal of Mythos is attractive and desirable. It is a good action game with great battles and, above all, it's free.

    Mythos is a very mediocre game. It's not a bad creation but it lacks some standard qualities. It's ugly, has some extremely dull quests, uninspired character progression and is generally boring. All of that piles up on top of a few good things – crafting, guilds, pretty cities and the fact that it's free to play.

    Occasionally satisfying combat can't overcome a bland world, unbalanced skills and obtuse crafting systems. What a mess.

    Mythos is almost competent as an action game. But if you come here expecting an MMO, and you like your MMOs to have a sense of purpose – whether it comes from innovative design, a world worth falling in love with or a certain awe-inspiring breadth – then this game is a bit of a wasteland.

    Another free-to-play MMO in an over-saturated market. [Aug 2011, p.64]
